Default futaba 149DP with 6v

i have been using a futaba 149DP with 6v supply forever...suddenly one reciever has gone crazy. It jitters with a 6v supply. In case of a 4.8v it behaves. What could have happened out of the blue?

just playing!

sometimes it is normal for the servos to jitter a bit with a very fresh....just off the charger battery.....


does it go away after a few minutes or does it stay....?

which servos?

doesnt go...it stays. Srvos are JR 3421 digitals and some more...besides servos jittering, the ones that dont jitter move jerkily.

Any strange behavior on a receiver should be resolved. I would pack it up and send it to Futaba for a checkout. If you have had a hard landing or two on it, or there is a lot of viberation, it may have lost one of it's ceramic filters. The 149DP is worth the cost of having it repaired by Futaba.
